Blog to the Oldskool Radio Sept 30th 2013 (96-98 dnb special)

Here’s the session from last Sunday, rerecorded because I forgot to press “record” when it was live on the air… did this in one take before heading out to a party last night, no volume correction but I cut a couple of offending measures out of the mix before mp3-izing. Overall I’d say it’s a pretty tidy mix given how little I play this stuff now, loads of old favorites I used to love (and still do). Some really huge popular tunes (ending with “lokust rmx” = duh) but also more nerdy selections, including an EP which I think is testpress only that I added to discogs a few years ago.

The mix starts with more laid back/atmospheric tunes before moving into some steppy stuff, but with a few diversions and diversity throughout. Personal track of the mix for me has got to be that Brass Wolf one – a pretty unknown and unappreciated tune from back then, I remember being kind of amazed with the choppy beat patterns when this came out, coupled with the syncopated percussion drum stabs. Sort of a photek-y move but still sounding original and awesome. Also, that Boymerang tune is quite underrated, obviously “Soul Beat Runna” was a bit game changing and everyone loves that Boymerang Break to death (including me) but I’ve always liked this B-side just as much if not more. Again, really interesting choppy beat work despite being in a 97-98 dnb context. There’s loads of good stuff in the mix though, check it out below!
